7 Scientifically Proven Steps To Achieve Lasting Happiness

Published

You wake up and go to work.

You exchange hellos and go to a meeting. You have lunch with someone special. You leave the office.

You grab dinner and drinks with friends. You go home. You go to bed. You can’t sleep.

You find yourself thinking, “Is something missing?”

Are you happy?

You may be content, but are you truly happy?

Real happiness is something that people constantly look for. It is a universal life goal to find happiness.

But how do we find happiness? We can’t buy it.

It’s something that eludes the majority of the people on the planet, and we envy the people who display genuine joy. We buy their books and we emulate their style, all in hopes of learning how to be like them.

But the common denominator I noticed in all of these successfully happy people is that they came to a point where they took charge of their lives.

They were like everyone else once, just getting by with whatever the world threw at them. But that changed when they changed. And your world will once something in you changes, too.

You can increase your happiness right now by applying any or all of these scientifically proven tips. Here’s what the outcome of research and experimentation has to say about creating your own happiness.

1. Be active but let your body recharge

Physical activity can increase happiness and will make you healthier. The Happiness Advantage explains a study wherein three groups of patients were treated for depression separately with medication, exercise, and a combination of both. All three groups showed increased levels of happiness.

Six months later, they were tested for relapse assessment. The relapse rate for those who took medication alone was 38%. The combination group had a rate of 31%. Guess what the relapse rate was for the exercise group? Only 9%!

There must be a psychological explanation here somewhere where relying on medications to make someone happy releases a person from any kind of responsibility to take charge. It could have made them feel that the happiness depended on a pill and wasn’t something that they can genuinely claim as their own.

Shifting to an active lifestyle need not be hard. You can even start with just seven minutes a day — just a tiny fraction of how much time people waste on average on social media.

You can even let your phone in on it by downloading one of the many popular fitness apps that keep track of your daily activity.

But remember, working out is secondary to sleep. Don’t abuse your body with too much activity that deprives it the opportunity to rest and recharge.

During sleep, our body recovers and repairs itself for the next day. Getting enough sleep gives us more focus and makes us more productive.

It also affects how sensitive we are to negative emotions. Sleep deprivation increases activity in the amygdala, the part of the brain that processes negative stimuli.

Lack of sleep can lead to poor work performance, irritable behavior, anger, and even depression. A 15-minute power nap in the middle of the day can work wonders because it helps reset your system and gives you a burst of energy.

So stop putting off sleep. Put on your nightcap and nap-cap instead.

2. Find an alternative to long commutes

A few hours after the day begins, it’s already ruined for those who endure tumultuous commuting to work.

It was discovered that commuting affects marriages as well. If one partner in a marriage commutes for more than 45 minutes a day, the marriage is 40% more likely to end in divorce.

If you’re looking for a new job, take into consideration how much time it will take you to get to and from work, especially if you’re married. Given this scientific discovery, it would be counter-intuitive to go about creating the same mistake that took a lot of marriages as casualties.

If you already have a job, move closer to your office and say goodbye to commuting woes.

You will definitely be happier.

3. Adopt a furry buddy

Having pets has been found to increase joy and self-esteem, and can also reduce depression.

That is why pets are often prescribed as part of a therapy regimen. Pets come with responsibilities, but they reciprocate it with feelings of purpose, being needed, and even love.

Having a dog requires taking it for a walk from time to time. This helps the owner experience the outside world at a more relaxed pace, and forces them to be at least a little active.

And visiting areas like parks and other relaxing, nature-ridden sites is not only physically but likewise psychologically healthy for the individual.

4. Appreciate what you have and be kind to others

Being grateful and finding contentment is a journey in itself, but it’s something achievable with baby steps. You can start the habit of seeing the good in every day by keeping a journal of 10 things you can be grateful for. It can comprise both random and significant events.

During particularly tough days, you can revisit earlier entries in your journal to see how much good and happiness have already come your way. This becomes an instant pick-me-upper, an investment for the gloomy rainy days.

Keeping this journal will help you be more perceptive about your surroundings. It keeps you alert and optimistic which then translate to positive emotions. It also reminds you just how many good things happen to you all the time, even though your brain tends to focus on and therefore remember the negative.

Oh, another thing: write, not type. People who write remember more and have a deeper understanding of the material compared to those who type with keyboards.

To up the ante, try being the giver and not just the documenter of happiness. It’s very enriching to take part in giving happiness to someone else.

Random acts of kindness, good deeds, and helping people can contribute greatly to how you feel. Researchers found out that people are happier when they are engaging in these kinds of activities.

Some feel that people will be happier if they have more. The truth is, people feel happier when they themselves serve as the source of happiness of others.

5. Meditate. Get in the “Zen”

Meditation helps improve focus and attention span. Further research has shown that, after meditating, people find a sense of calm and contentment.

In Massachusetts, a study was conducted on people before and after a course in meditation. Results showed that the parts of the brain associated with stress shrank, while parts of the brain associated with compassion grew.

Meditation gives you the power to “rewire” your way of thinking, proving that a change in perspective allows us greater happiness.

Aside from happiness, meditation can also give you more than 70 scientifically proven benefits. How’s that for maximum mileage on an hour’s session?

6. Exercise your brain

Learning is a psychological need for humans.

Learning a new skill or a new fact can lead to more happiness as well. It can be as simple or complex as you want it to be, like cooking a new dish or learning a new language.

The brain is also a muscle, which means that it needs exercise. When people are engaged in learning new things, parts of the brain responsible for happiness also benefit from the process.

You also feel certain levels of accomplishment every time you succeed in something new.

7. Smile!

Practice smiling genuinely — not only with your lips but also your eyes. Smiling makes you feel better, improves your attention span, and reduces pain.

When getting used to the practice of smiling, revert to happy thoughts and things you can be thankful about. This will help make the habit more of a response rather than a chore.

A study reported that just thinking about something good has the power to make you smile. So saturate your mind with memories and thoughts that channel positive vibrations enough to keep those lips upturned.

In fact, don’t limit it to smiling. Be generous with your laughter, as it works miracles in boosting your mood, not to mention fighting off wrinkles as it exercises your facial muscles.

Laughter is potent enough to reduce anxiety and decrease symptoms of depression.

So start showing off that gorgeous smile. Who knows? It might brighten more days than just your own.

People think of happiness as a response rather than a disposition. That’s why many people miss out on the secret because they are always looking for reasons external to them to be happy.

Find happiness within yourself, with who you are. Once you see your life in a brighter light, it heals something in you.

Parting with the words of Leo Tolstoy, “If you want to be happy, be.”

Why Humanity Is So Obsessed With Finding Aliens Right Now

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Behind closed doors, quietly, billions are researching and trying to learn about the reality of aliens. It is one of the biggest topics being explored by humanity right now and there is a deep reason for this.

  • Reflect On:

    Why are we so enthralled by the reality of ET life? What would happen to our consciousness if we learned they were real and that there were millions of races? How would daily life change?

The biggest secret behind why ET and UFO disclosure has been suppressed is something that isn’t discussed all that much. We typically hear about things like technology suppression, specifically energy systems. How do these crafts get here? What propulsion systems do they use? These questions lead people towards the reality that the technologies of UFO craft ultimately would disrupt our fossil fuel energy oligarchy so much that it would also collapse our economies in some ways.

Of course, this would not be such a bad thing. Why? Because when you consider that this would mean having endless and ‘free’ energy, cost for goods would drop dramatically. Not just that but, when you begin to examine the ease in creating systems based around abundance, it becomes incredible to consider what is truly possible.

An endless supply of food grown locally, everywhere! Endless energy, installed everywhere! Cars and building facilities that do not create pollution. We could essentially live in a society built such that we do not need to be enslaved by money or debt because abundance would simply become a natural happening of a society built with abundant technology, that’s harmonious, in place.

We can all see the value of such disclosures, and the reason why this would be covered but. But there is something even deeper.

The Biggest Secret

The question is, if we know these technologies exist, and they are being suppressed. And if we know that whistleblowers and people have already reverse engineered or built these things, and not all have been killed or threatened, what is the reason why these things are held back? Why do we still deny these realities en masse?

The truth is, it comes down to consciousness. We’ve been saying this since the inception of CE in 2009: solutions are there, but they won’t come until humanity is ready. What does this ACTUALLY mean to be ready? It means growing up enough as a race, that we can actually be responsible for what it is we will have access to. Not just that, but to be able to say we have ‘graduated’ in a sense, to say we are beyond our old ways.

While that sounds like a loaded few sentences, and they are in a sense, all that is really being said here is, humanity has been stuck in a cycle of experience where we continually see everything, and everyone as separate from us. We are individuals, living out our identities and lives and we are simply here to survive. We believe the limiting ideas of what our reality is and should be and thus we create that reality consciously. Our collective belief about how our world should be is directly tied to what actually happens.

But there is this feeling deep within us at this time, and I know you feel it, where we are beginning to deeply question our ways. How we treat one another, our political systems, the elite manipulation and control that exists, the existential reality of who we are and how we are truly just consciousness, all connected. These deep questions are asking us to explore who we truly are and why we are truly here. And many of us are doing so. This is beginning to create instability and change in our system because the consciousness that holds up our old world, is beginning to crack, and a new one is emerging.

It’s On Us

As our consciousness continues to shift, through us truly doing our own questioning, changing our own patterns, habits, thoughts, and actions, we will begin to truly create the solutions necessary to create a world where we can thrive. And disclosure of technologies will come forth. It comes down to US having to do this work, not governments, not someone else coming to save us. It’s about creating an entire populace with the mentality of truly being empowered and self-responsible, as opposed to needed governance and feeling helpless.

This is why the greatest reason why ET reality is so suppressed comes down to consciousness because with an introduction to ET life, comes an entire myriad of experience we have not been exposed to.

In the video below I explain what this means deeply, and how we can begin opening up the doors to mass contact with ET’s.

What We Can Learn From Advanced ET Civilizations (Part 1: Sexual Freedom)

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    One of the main ways that our societies differs from those of advanced ET civilizations is that we don't currently live and organize ourselves as though we are all one, whereas their entire societal structure is based on this.

  • Reflect On:

    If we organized our societies with the clear understanding that we are all one, what would be the implications in terms of who is responsible for raising children that come into the world, and consequently the impact on our sexual freedom?

There is one fundamental thing that distinguishes us as human beings at our current evolutionary stage from most of the more advanced ET civilizations: they know that they are all one, and the way they organize their societies reflects their awareness of this fact. Here on the Earth, human beings are at various stages of their awareness of this, ranging from the certainty held by the masters and avatars who roam the planet to the complete denial of those who live their lives in the context of our apparent separateness and disconnectedness from each other.

For many people, ‘we are all one’ is an interesting catch-phrase and certainly something we should aspire towards, but it is fraught with doubt and uncertainty, as the powerful illusion of materiality and our separateness seems to predominate our perception and impacts the systems of belief we live by.

Perfect. All is as it should be, for we are here in this 3rd Density reality precisely to have a rich, sensual experience of dense materiality as part of our soul’s journey to self-realization, which ultimately culminates in the direct apperception that we are all the same ‘self’.

That said, it may be instructive to the process for us to come to understand how ET civilizations who are more highly evolved organize themselves, as an inspiration for us to continue along in our consciousness journey. It may even spur small changes in the way we conduct our personal lives that reflect our growing understanding of our underlying unity as human beings.

First, though, we have to conceive of society as being very different from the one most of us are currently experiencing. At present we are in large, impersonal ‘communities’ within our societies which we can’t rely on to serve our needs. In effect, since we don’t even know most of the people in the community–good people, for the most part–there is an inherent mistrust in them and their motives. We gather in our smaller groups of shared interests, of course, like soccer teams and bridge clubs, but other than those few who still enjoy being part of a traditional large extended family, we are not really familiar with the experience of having a large group of people who are, by nature, prepared to tend to the needs of all individuals within. But what if we were? How would our basic needs be served differently?

The Raising Of Children

To begin with, fundamental aspects of societal development, like how children are raised, could be done completely differently, in a way that best accommodates the lives of both the children and the parents. In his bestselling trilogy Conversations With God, Neal Donald Walsch touches upon the discussion of how, in advanced civilizations, young parents of children are not considered to be the best qualified in their communities to raise their offspring, as they have hardly emerged from childhood themselves:

advertisement - learn more

In highly evolved cultures, children don’t raise children. Offspring are given to elders to raise. This doesn’t mean that new offspring are torn from those who gave them life, taken from their arms and given to virtual strangers to raise. It is nothing like that. In these cultures, elders live closely with the young ones. They are not shuffled off to live by themselves. They are not ignored, and left to work out their own final destinies. They are honored, revered, and held close, as part of a loving, caring, vibrant community.

When a new offspring arrives, the elders are right there, deep within the heart of that community and that family, and their raising of the offspring is as organically correct as it feels in your society to have the parents do this. The difference is that, though they always know who their “parents” are—the closest term in their language would be “life-givers”—these offspring are not asked to learn about the basics of life from beings who are still learning about the basics of life themselves. In highly evolved societies, the elders organize and supervise the learning process, as well as housing, feeding, and caring for the children. Offspring are raised in an environment of wisdom and love, great, great patience, and deep understanding.

The young ones who gave them life are usually off somewhere, meeting the challenges and experiencing the joys of their own young lives. They may spend as much time with their offspring as they choose. They may even live in the Dwelling of the Elders with the children, to be right there with them in a “home” environment, and to be experienced by them as part of it. It is all a very unified, integrated experience. But it is the elders who do the raising, who take the responsibility. And it is an honor, for upon the elders is placed the responsibility for the future of the entire species. And in highly evolved societies, it is recognized that this is more than should be asked of young ones.

Sexual Freedom

The implications of this are far-reaching, not only for the children, but the child-bearers as well:

In your society you have insisted on making child-bearers responsible for child raising—with the result that you’ve made not only the process of parenting very difficult, but distorted many of the energies surrounding the sexual act as well as.

Many humans have observed what I’ve observed here. Namely, that a good many humans—perhaps most—are not truly capable of raising children when they are capable of having them. However, having discovered this, humans have put in place exactly the wrong solution.

Rather than allow younger humans to enjoy sex, and if it produces children, have the elders raise them, you tell young humans not to engage in sex until they are ready to take on the responsibility of raising children. You have made it “wrong” for them to have sexual experiences before that time, and thus have created a taboo around what was intended to be one of life’s most joyful celebrations.

Of course, this is a taboo to which offspring will pay little attention—and for good reason: it is entirely unnatural to obey it. Human beings desire to couple and copulate as soon as they feel the inner signal which says they are ready. This is human nature.

In the natural order of your species, sexuality is budding at anywhere from age 9 to age 14. From age 15 onward it is very much present and expressing in most human beings. Thus begins a race against time—with children stampeding toward the fullest release of their own joyful sexual energy, and parents stampeding to stop them. Parents have needed all the assistance and all the alliances they could find in this struggle, since, as has been noted, they are asking their offspring to not do something that is every bit a part of their nature.

Benefits To Society Itself

Rather than being part of a social order that works so hard to suppress sexual desires on the part of young people, wouldn’t we want to be contributing to the free expression of what is beautiful and natural? Do we fear that this will lead to sexual deviance and inappropriate behavior? I believe the opposite is true. In fact, paving the way for freedom of sexual expression based on instinct and nature also could give many reciprocal benefits back to the society:

In any society where producing offspring at a young age is not considered “wrong”— because the tribal elders raise them and there is, therefore, no sense of overwhelming responsibility and burden—sexual repression is unheard of, and so is rape, deviance, and social-sexual dysfunction.

Imagine being part of a society that was no longer subject to the types of dysfunctions that come from sexual repression and the various emotions associated with thwarted sexual desires. Imagine if all the pretension and posturing around sexual engagement were dropped, how much more relaxed and connected we’d feel.

A Return To Community

Of course, none of this is a suggestion that we are able to immediately throw caution to the wind in terms of the sexual expression of our young, given our current social structure. We first have to examine the fact that we have moved away from organizing ourselves through self-supporting tribes, clans, and communities as some of our traditional societies did in the past. Somehow, we became convinced that ‘progress’ meant living in big cities where not only are people disconnected from each other, but elders are pushed over to the side, without any role in maintaining the knowledge and guiding principles the society had developed over time.

Let’s think about moving more towards extra-familial groups that provide comprehensive support for all its members. Seeing that this is how many advanced extraterrestrial civilizations live, perhaps we now have more we can look forward to as we work towards building a more evolved community, society, and world.

How Changes In Collective Consciousness Alter Our Everyday Reality

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Science has demonstrated that there is an energy field that connects us all, and that at its core, all matter is consciousness. Collective Consciousness plays a huge role in how we define our world functions, based on our collective beliefs.

  • Reflect On:

    What do you believe is possible for yourself and for humanity? Do you feel we are capable of creating a world where we can thrive? Do you find yourself thinking humans are not capable of much? These beliefs affect the world around us deeply.

Want to see change in the world? We have to change collective consciousness. And in order to do that, we must change ourselves.

This has been the core message of Collective Evolution since our humble beginnings in 2009. Why? Because collective consciousness is something at the centre, or core, of what connects all of us. In post material science we are beginning to understand that we are not entirely just a brain inside a body, and that consciousness is who we truly are. Beyond that, consciousness is also at the crux of everything.

We sit at an interesting time in our history where the need and desire to change our world has become something almost all of us feel. Whether we witness the apparent chaos of daily life, the turmoil that happens in areas around the world, or whether we witness the challenges in our own life, we feel this need for change. Deep down, something about the human experience, as it is, seems outdated and almost stale.

We’ve grown tired of suffering, pain, war, poverty, doing the same thing over and over again. We want to experience something new, rich and deep. This is showing up in political activism, the search for who we are beyond our identities, the search for meaning in life and wanting to do careers that we love.

Ultimately, we are searching for peace and a deeper understanding of our reality. So how do we do this? How do we change our world, change the various daily structures we deal with like our economy, government, career paths, as well as the limited idea of what life is and should be. How do we end our suffering and war with one another to truly create a world where we can thrive and have abundance?

Collective Consciousness

If you are gaining curiosity reading this, great. You are feeling something that has been growing within you, and all of us, for quite some time. If you think these ideas are laughable, and that none of this change is possible, then great, because the video below is for you too. Because your disbelief is playing a role in why our world is this way, and it’s time to explore what that truly means.

Collective consciousness is an energy field, if you will, by which groups of people or all humans connect to and share ideas, beliefs and understandings about our world. This is not a physical space, but one that is energetic or conscious.

Below is a video I created to help explain how something called collective consciousness functions, so we can begin to understand why we must change ourselves to change our world, and how our limited belief of what our world is and can be, plays a role in keeping it that way.

Post Material Science & Consciousness

The Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) Laboratory has been trying to wrap their heads around the subject and have concluded that the human mind does, in fact, have a capacity to influence the output of devices known as Random Event Generators (REGs), on a collective scale, or via collective consciousness.

A project that initially started when a student was curious to study the effects of the human mind and intention on the surrounding environment, turned into a rigorous testing lab where Dr. Robert Jahn and his lab assistant spent many hours experimenting to determine whether or not the mind has an effect on our physical world. Jahn and his assistant were able to determine that the human minds interactions with the machines demonstrated a relationship that was not physical in nature. The mind was able to affect and change outcomes of the machine in ways that were beyond standard deviations. In essence, consciousness was having an effect over the physical world.

To determine the effects of the mind’s intention on the physical world, they built several machines called a random number generator. The machine would essentially mimic a coin flip and record the results over time. The machine performed 200 flips per second and produced an average mean of 100 as one would expect. Left unattended, the machine would continue to produce results that suggested a 50/50 chance of producing either heads or tails. The interesting results came when human intention started to interact with the machine. What was once a random 50/50 chance of producing heads or tails began to deviate from expectation as the observer began to intend for the numbers to be higher or lower. While the effects of the mind over the machines was not large, it was enough that contemporary physics is unable to explain what exactly is happening. Perhaps this is where the quantum world can shed light?

The implications of this research on humanity is quite fascinating given it could reach into the realms of creating a world of peace, a thriving world and abundance. If intentions and thoughts can impact something the way it has been demonstrated above, why not explore the boundaries of how far this can go? It is my feeling and understanding that we create our realities with our intentions and state of consciousness and I feel science is starting to confirm this. In time we will realize the true power of our minds and intentions.

The video below is a very brief synopsis of the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research laboratory of Princeton University, whose research into mind-matter interaction forms the foundation of Psyleron Technology.

If we wish to understand collective consciousness more deeply, and how we are all truly connected, a great place to start is to begin exploring what we are discovering in the field of post material science as we study consciousness.

We have a great deal of content to explore on that by clicking here.
